LINE Messenger App Invites Users to Sell Profitable Stickers

line app stickersLine is opening its lucrative sticker business to its 340 million messenger app users. Now, anyone can upload an image and sell the stickers to other LINE users for a 50% split of the profits.

For all of the sticker naysayers shaking their heads to this story, remember that last year, the company made over $10 million in USD worth of stickers every month. That’s approximately one sticker for every seven messages being sent. When we first shared LINE, the app had only 230 million users. Now, with over 340 million users and counting, the social sticker business has more potential than ever.

According to statistics from App Annie, LINE was ranked number one in iOS/Google Play 2013 sales when excluding games. When it comes to downloads, it’s at the number six position right below Instagram and above Twitter.
